VDE-AR-N 4110: 2018 and VDE-AR-N 4120: 2018 are the latest technical grid connection requirements for medium-voltage and high-voltage networks released by German authorities in 2018 and replace the BDEW regulations and VDE-AR-N 4120: 2015 respectively. Known for the industry’s most stringent requirements, they bring considerable challenges to massive manufacturers, operators and certification bodies. In particular, VDE-AR-N 4120: 2018 is more demanding than VDE-AR-N 4110: 2018 in tests such as high/low voltage ride-through and  reactive power response.

The inverter is a compact 110kVA multi-MPPT inverter addressing  commercial installations with a high protection level of IP66 and C5, also is also compatible with bifacial modules and tracking systems.
